Taliban can open office in Peshawar, says Imran
LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan said the banned Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) could open their office in Peshawar, ARY News reported on Monday.
Talking to journalists in Lahore, PTI chief said every step will be taken to make dialogues with the Taliban a success.
He said the Taliban office could be opened in Khyber Pakhtonkhwa, after consultation with the federal government. He said negotiations with the Taliban were being hampered as democratic government instead of military was conducting the exercise.
Meanwhile, the PTI also agreed to become a part of negotiations committee with the Taliban, ARY News reported.
The PTI has forwarded a name of Gulzar Khan, member of KP Assembly, to become a part of government committee to hold peace talks with the Taliban.
PTI chief said 6,000 big and 200 minor operations were launched against militants in the province.
A month ago, PTI had declined to become a part of the committee when Taliban had named Imran Khan to represent their committee among other members.
